Dad's Bday

Author: Dorsey Velasquez

I wasn't sure what to do for my dad's birthday this year, but I knew it had to be something good since he was always going above and beyond for mine. My sister and I were discussing options, and it just sort of hit me: I would make him an extravagant birthday dinner all by myself. I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but I can barely boil water, so making him the big dinner would really surprise him and blow him away. I have recently gotten Internet at my house from www.clearwirelessinternetservice.comso I looked up recipes that I thought might be doable for someone of my skill set. I decided on beef wellington, roasted asparagus, and of course a homemade cake… If I was going to do this I was going to do it right! When my dad's birthday rolled around I spent all day in the kitchen, but to my surprise and to his, everything turned out wonderfully! He said it was the best birthday ever, and now I have much more kitchen confidence!
